Summary

The hybridization principle of atomic orbitals used from the thirties up to the present days as a prelude to the formation of chemical bonds is surveyed. The expose is centered on the ab-initio procedure of overlap-matrix localization suggested by G. Del Re in 1963 (Theoretica Chimica Acta 1, pp 188-197), and its successive extensions and various applications in Quantum Chemistry are described. Some conceptual aspects of hybridization ...
